          Now for the good weekend we had with our boys . The weather was amazing warm and sunny with a thunderstorm Sat evening  , we were all out on the patio watching the lighting and of course Papa was time exposing photos of the lighting , he got some amazing photos I will post them tomorrow . 

We all did some yard work and then sat by the campfire and enjoyed the rest of our afternoon laughing and joking about lol !

                      This was Saturday , Sunday we just relaxed for the best part of the day, then the boys had to go back in the later afternoon . It was a good weekend  .  They will be coming  down again in the summer . Papa will put them to work again I am sure lol .

       The weather this morning is windy and warm , rain is on the way and maybe a thunderstorm or two . Spring flowers are rising more and more from the ground now and our yard clean up is almost all done , Bird bath fountain is all set up , hoses are hooked up  and patio furniture all set up now to  . Next .. will be  the planting of flowers and filling the raised veggie garden with good soil  and planting veggies all  in a few weeks !

                                                                  Until next time my friends !

Wow, you folks are right into spring there Elaine. Glad it was a good weekend and birthday celebration for you son. Our fire pit may start to show in the next day or two but we'll have to wade through over a foot of snow to get to it! I heard it's going to drop to really cold temperatures there tomorrow. Be prepared! It will be a shock. LOL

glad you had family time with your boys. said...

Elaine glad David enjoyed reading his Birthday wishes.

Do you ever watch the Pawn Star Antique store when people come in and ask how much they can get for the item. With the old man and the old mans son and they have a Grandson and Chummily not sure if he is a Grandson. Anyhow he is so smart and funny. he is a spot on guy he know s more then one can think.

Well of course Chummily is my favorite on there. Your son David the Birthday guy reminds me of him. Cute smile and looks like your son has a fab fun personality. Yet he is a goofier and can be a sly fox I bet.

Looks like you had a fun weekend.

Your boys look somewhat alike. Am I wrong?

So nice they got up to be with you both.

My sons are married and they come up as well. A mothers love know matter what age loves the boys up.

Like to hear all they have done since away from us old folks I say.

Thanks for the fun shots.

Patsy said...

Belated birthday wishes to your son, David. Looks like after the work was done, everyone had a great time by the fire. Roasted marshmallows are my favorite too!

Gail said...

It is nice to have some help.

That is the way I want to spend my birthday.

William Kendall said...

Might as well get some errands done while they were at home anyway!

Miggs of course, was busy supervising.

Vee said...

Looks like a great way to spend the weekend...a little work...a little play...all good!

Crystal said...
